‘Paranoid safety culture’ strikes again!

Last year we showed you the absurd double Give Way markings across a cycle path on Newmarket Road where the super dangerous road being crossed led to a locked gate onto a field.

Now, in the recent reconstruction of the cycle path on Hauxton Road, about half way between the M11 and the car entrance to the new Trumpington Park & Ride site, there’s another one. There are Give Way lines across a track to nowhere: another locked gate into a field. Even the owners emphasise that the entrance is not in use.
